The idle ramblings of a Jack of some trades, Master of none

I'm pleased to note that my alma mater, St. Stephen's College, is starting a Centre for Translations. The idea is to train up people in translation (literary and technical?), and do something about disseminating India's vast linguistic diversity among its peoples.

They are starting with Malayalam to English (the principal Dr Valson Thampu being a Malayali and a Professor of English, a successful translator, and one of the instigators of the project), and going on to Hindi, Punjabi and Bengali.

I wish them all success.
